Freestyle Marketing Group, an event sponsor, attended the 2nd Annual Philippines Humanitarian Scholarship Fundraiser and had a ball! We all enjoyed yummy cuisine while watching classical Filipino dance, which we all vowed to learn by next year.
Philippines Humanitarian strives to directly impact the lives of children in the Philippines with support and sponsorship to pursue education, a cause very dear to founder Erni Armstrong.
The fundraising event was held to provide aid to indigent children in the Philippines. The event brought together like-minded people looking to support these children and young adults, and the end result was something to be proud of. While the numbers are still being tallied, the event was initially able to raise enough funds to support 23 students’ education and provide 12 college scholarships. Funds were also delegated to rebuild a library that was destroyed by recent typhoons.
The impact of this effort cannot be easily represented in numbers. Impoverished youth in the Philippines, specifically Payatas, have a rough beginning. Scavenging the dump is a regular way of survival, and they start young. It is the hopes of Philippines Humanitarian and its supporters to give these children a better future, who will in turn be able to pass that along to future generations.
